TSTT and LogosII hosts special children

Trinidad - "A book holds a house of gold,” the Chinese proverb goes, and the TSTT Foundation is sharing that wealth with a group of disadvantaged children. On Tuesday, July 8, the company will sponsor kids from three children’s homes to a visit on the Logos II, donating over $2,000 in books to them.

The children are from the Curepe-based Amica House (for abandoned and orphaned girls), Joshua House (a home for abandoned and orphaned boys in Arima) and the Eternal Light Vocational School in Tunapuna (for children with emotional or learning challenges that make normal schooling difficult). “TSTT understands the enormous value of books, reading and knowledge,” says Camille Salandy, TSTT’s Head of Public Relations and External Affairs for . “We are especially pleased to not only contribute to the Logos II’s mission of sharing learning through literature, but also giving some of our nation’s own very special young people an opportunity to be a part of this rare experience.” The children will be welcomed aboard by Ms Salandy, Inshan Ramsaroop, Communications Executive, BLINK Broadband Marketing, and the ship’s commander, Captain Pat Tracy.

They will be entertained by a short show put on by the staff of the Logos, given a brief tour of the ship and then invited to browse and chose books. The visit will close with lunch in the ship’s dining room. Since its purchase in 1989, the Logos II has hosted over 10 million visitors from some 338 ports of call in 82 countries throughout the world, offering books and knowledge.
